As an UK expat, I have to say I miss the actual thrill of hunting in stores as frustrating as it was when distribution was bad. I feel spoiled for choice in America in comparison lol.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2016 - 04:48 PM)

And depending on where you live, even American stores

@  wonko the sane? : (27 May 2016 - 02:59 PM)

Or canadian stores, or australian stores, or german stores...

@  Bass X0 : (27 May 2016 - 02:14 PM)

at least you got the exercise. i ordered all of them online. there's no point in being a serious collector if someone is only going to rely on using UK stores.

The one I go to gives me a discount on each issue's cover price. I still have to go there to pick up my comics but I'm sure I'll never miss any of them

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

Plokatron, I don't think many comics companies do direct subscriptions like that anymore. However many local comic shops will reserve comics for you in a subscription fashion.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 May 2016 - 06:46 AM)

I have a friend who is one of the illegitimte comics trivia masters on the planet, and he says all the animation was hand-drawn by Muppets.

@  Scavgraphics : (27 May 2016 - 04:21 AM)

@Telly I got a friend who's one of the legit comics trivia masters on the planet. I've asked if he knows.

@  Plokatron : (26 May 2016 - 10:35 PM)

Been wondering and I'm probly being a complete slag brain and not notice whats in front of me. But does IDW have subscriptions available on their site? I'm thinking of signing up for monthly comics and Transformers is da one.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2016 - 09:01 PM)

No idea, but I'd guess it'd be some in-studio job otherwise, given the obssessiveness nerds can have over about 50 years, we'd know by now.

@  Telly : (26 May 2016 - 08:54 PM)

does anyone know who did the "animation" for the 1960s batman show? been wondering for years and i cant find an answer anywhere. looks to me like either jack kirby or john romita

I picked up the Wal-Mart exclusive Hardhead for $15 this Monday.
This was a printed shelf tag sale rather than a clearance sticker, so I assume this is not an isolated incident. The tag did call it "Onslaught," but I assume that's just they way it was entered into the system in the first place.

I can confirm this for the Bay City Wal-Mart in Michigan, but they sold out of all of that wave.

They had Onslaughts and one Stormcloud for $11 dollars there too, but there aren't any Stormclouds there, my brother bought the last one.

I sure did! Oddly enough, just after buying I discovered that the batteries had died on my original. Good timing!

Rc: I did too. I couldn't resist the "and awaaay we go" gag and the price cut. So now I have normal Powerglide and Disco Powerglide.

Somehow, I don't think PG would see anything wrong with having two of himself around. Would perhaps be useful with his Astoria and Moonracer situation. icon-hotrod.gif

I picked up all three for $15 a pop this weekend. I'm happy to have Skyjack, but the other two just make me depressed with myself, like I'm living out the old "bad food, small portions" joke.

"You have any interest in these two toys?"

"No."

"They're $30 each. You sure you don't want them?"

"No."

"How bout $30 for both?"

"Okay!"

Bingo.

Picked up Skyfall and Hardhead, my Wal-Mart had a huge pile of broken-electronics Onslaught, and one Storm Cloud. Is it wrong that I'm still cranky he wasn't Tailwind?

And while I'll gladly buy another Silverbolt-mold, I can't bring myself to get another of the empirically superior Powerglide mold.

I'm weird.

Cheap here, too. Got a $15 Hardhead the other day, then went back a few days later to see him marked down to $11. Also picked up Masterpiece Skywarp for $40, so I'm glad I went back.

Guess I know where I am going as soon as the snow gets us out of work today. I do admit, I wanna get me some of that Red Powerglide action.

Also, local Walmart has restocked masterpiece Skywarps, a whole endcap of them for $30 finally.
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

I picked Skyfall, Hardhead and Fearswoop all at half price. Just about every Walmart exclusive EXCEPT Masterpiece Skywarp is half price.

Anyone notice that Hardhead rings up as Onslaught on the computer?
